11:12 pm
his presidency. his highest rating was 68% in april of 2009. christin ayers is in washington, d.c. to cover not just inauguration but the california leaders who are also there. we understand the topic of conversation today was gun control? >> reporter: that's right. as the national day of service was ending today, all of the balls began at california's golden state ball. talk quickly turned to the president's tough new gun- control proposal. hours before president obama's official swearing in, california's political heavyweights rubbed elbows in washington, d.c. and talk turned to sweeping new gun- control proposals the president has outlined. >> the american people want gun violence prevention to take place. the president says he will give it his all to make that happen. i don't know what further motivation we could have than what happened in newtown.

11:14 pm
down. >> reporter: but that controversy may pale in comparison to the kind of gridlock that could take place. >> does it seem realistic at this point to think that could pass with such a divided congress? >> well, it has to go to the public. i think the more unified the public is on gun violence prevention, the more congress will act upon it. >> reporter: by law, the president has to be sworn in on january 20, so he will be sworn in in a private ceremony tomorrow. but all of the inauguration celebration and parades will happen on monday. >> i know you'll be covering the private swearing in tomorrow. clearly that's the focus. but there's also a lot of other events to celebrate. what else is going on? >> reporter: once president obama and vice president biden are sworn in in separate ceremonies, they'll then go to
11:15 pm
arlington ceremony and lay a wreath there. they'll also have a candlelight ceremony going on. >> you've got a busy couple days ahead of you. thanks to much. we hope you'll stay with cbs 5 and christin ayers for complete coverage of the inauguration. we'll have special reports from washington tomorrow and of course on monday, so stay with us. some years, they have to move the inauguration indoors because it's so cold. >> it won't be that bad at all, about 46 degrees, but there is a chance of a snow shower by the effect hours. by tuesday, the coldest air mass so far this winter season. good evening. we're beginning to warm up ever so slightly. let's go ahead and head outside where today we had temperatures that banked from 60 degrees in pacifica, concord, livermore, also in fairfield, to 70 degrees. the first time we realized 70 this year, it was 73 degrees in santa cruz.
